"In America, we generally don't train kids in pointe every day," says Kee-Juan Han, director of The Washington School of Ballet. At TWSB, pointe preparation begins in Level 3, where students take two-hour classes three days a week to allow time for additional foot and ankle exercises and careful evaluation. Promotion into Level 3 is based on technical readiness, not age. "If they're not strong enough for Level 3, we don't move them up," says Han.

Level 3 curriculum introduces relevé during fondu, passé, and adagio combinations to strengthen feet and ankles. In January, TWSB students start wearing demi-pointe shoes, which have a hard box but no shank. "It's difficult to go directly from soft shoes to pointe shoes," says Han.
